Summer In The City

Shirt: £24, Next.  Skirt: H&M (sold out but buy similar in the sale here). Bag: £350, Sophie Hulme. Sandals: €125, Ancient Greek SandalsSunglasses: from £20, Toyshades.
Boy, it's hot out there. And I'm going to do that incredibly British thing of complaining. Frankly, a bit of air wouldn't go amiss...and when you don't have an air conditioned office to go to and you're on your feet all day, what exactly do you wear to still look chic for meetings? 



A chic pair of flat sandals is essential - closed toe shoes just won't do right now. A shirt is always a great workwear staple but this short sleeved version allows for more air to flow, and gingham is the surprise hit of the summer. 

A full skirt, although still warm, is one of the smartest separates going, whilst also allowing for some personal air conditioning... Despite it being holiday temperatures outside, I still need to get down to business.



My current obsession: Tada & Toy earcuff, £38 (you don't have to have your ears pierced!)

  2. I love this look. I'm embracing the skirts too as a lovely alternative to shorts. They do make you feel a little more dressed and put together don't they?
